**Description:**Computer algebra systems allow students to work on mathematical

models more efficiently than in the case of pencil and paper. The

use of such systems also leads to fewer errors and enables students

to work on complex and computationally intensive models. Aimed at

undergraduates in their second or third year, this book is filled

with examples from a wide variety of disciplines, including

biology, economics, medicine, engineering, game theory, physics,

and chemistry. The text includes a large number of Maple(R)

recipes.
